The Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge is an important breeding area for mammals, birds, and other animals. The National Wildlife Refuge is located on land surrounding Lake Lowell, just outside Nampa, Idaho. It serves as a resting and wintering area for birds, including mallards and Canada geese, along the Pacific Flyway and was named a "Globally Important Bird Area" by the American Bird Conservancy.[2]

Come see what made Oregon Trail pioneers Milford and Mattie Givens trade their Oregon dreams for life in this beautiful high desert setting at the base of Idaho's Owyhee mountains. Located an hour from Boise, and just 1/2 hour from Nampa or Caldwell, Givens Hot Springs takes you away from the stresses of life as you soak or swim in this naturally soft, hot mineral water. Add to your swim a night or relaxing weekend in a tent under the stars, in your own RV, one of our camp trailers, or a quaint 1940's cabin and you won't want to leave!

The Train Depot - The Canyon County Historical Society was established in 1972 as a group of folks coming together to save the Nampa Train Depot from demolition by Union Pacific. We have been a community storehouse of local treasures displayed in the Nampa Train Depot Museum since 1976. Having acquired the Our Memories museum in Caldwell in 2007, we continue to seek out history to protect and share. 

Nampa Train Depot Museum is open Thursday thru Saturday 10AM-3PM
